Air Conditioning Maintenance
Air Conditioning Tune-Up
Everyone knows you can pay an auto mechanic a little now for routine service or pay them a lot later for major repairs. The same idea holds true for your air conditioner especially in the South Florida heat.
Efficiency Loss 5% a Year
Without regular maintenance an air conditioner looses about 5% of its original efficiency for each year of operation. That means that the 12 SEER unit that you bought just a few years ago may be functioning like a 9 SEER unit today! The good news is that you can recover most of that lost efficiency through regular maintenance. Studies show with regular tune-ups a unit will maintain up to 95% of its original efficiency. This means that the cost of an annual tune-up is recovered very quickly in your monthly electric bill savings and reduced repair costs.
Preventative maintenance maximizes your equipment s performance and efficiency, saving you money on energy. Dirty blower wheels and dirty coils all have a direct impact on your air conditioners air flow and drastically affect efficiency. This creates restrictive airflow and motors are forced to work harder resulting in loss of energy efficiency and a shorter lifespan of equipment. Having your A/C system serviced regularly will help you maximize your air conditioning system s life expectancy and save you from unexpected breakdowns that can lead to costly repairs.

Tips for Maintaining Your A/C System
The most basic type of maintenance for your A/C system is changing your air filters. Most air filters should be changed every month. Some filters are designed to last up to 90 days, but in high heat or in buildings with high occupant traffic, filters should be changed more often.
Drain Line Cleaning
Flushing your drain lines on a regular basis will prevent a drain line blockage and possible water damage to your home or business.
With regular preventative maintenance and regular filter changes you can improve the air quality in your building/business. Unchanged filters can become a bed for fungal growth allowing particles to be distributed within your environment.
A/C Service Maintenance Contracts
ECM offers full parts and labor A/C Service Contracts that will protect you from unexpected and costly repair bills. The Service Contract covers service calls and unlimited labor and parts to repair your A/C. It also includes an annual 21 pt. tune-up.
